The Fellowship of the Ring Anthology

From LOTR-TCG Wiki
A sealed FOTR Anthology
A Tengwar version of Legolas, Greenleaf (1R50) which was included in this Anthology.

The Fellowship of the Ring Anthology was a collector's product released on 23 July, 2003 with an MESP of $36.00 USD[1].

It consisted of the following:


With this Anthology, Decipher began a pattern that would be followed for each subsequent block, with the release of The Two Towers Anthology, The Return of the King Anthology, and The War of the Ring Anthology in sequence. Hunters Block was the only block to not receive the same treatment.


Decipher Announcement:

Decipher is pleased to announce the first in a series of anthologies based on The Lord of the Rings™ TCG for each block. The highlight of The Fellowship of the Ring Anthology will be 18 cards from the Fellowship block reprinted in the Elvish Tengwar alphabet.

These 18 cards, hand-lettered by noted New Zealand artist Daniel Reeve, are sure to be a collector's delight. Reeve, the official calligrapher and cartographer of The Lord of the Rings movies, has beautifully rendered the same Tengwar symbols used in the films and seen on such works as the inscription on The One Ring and the pages of The Book of Mazarbul .

In addition to the 18 Tengwar cards, the Fellowship Anthology will contain a Fellowship block 63-card starter deck, two 11-card booster packs from each Fellowship block set (The Fellowship of the Ring, Mines of Moria, and Realms of the Elf-lords), a 29-card Fellowship Draft Pack, and a comprehensive card list of the first three sets. All will be contained in a sturdy collector's card box with a capacity pf over 600 cards.
